Century Group and Four Winds Brewing Company are pleased to announce that they are pursuing plans for Four Winds to establish a craft brewery and restaurant at Southlands- a beach community rooted in farming and food in Tsawwassen.
Century Group has today filed an application to the City of Delta seeking approval of a Development Permit for a mixed-use building to be constructed in Southlands’ Market District that will be anchored on Market Avenue with an 8,600 sqft. Four Winds restaurant and craft brewery and will contain 35 residences consisting of garden flats and stacked townhomes. This proposed mixed-use building complies with the current zoning regulations that pertain to Southlands.
“We have been talking with the Mills family for a number of years now about bringing Four Winds to Southlands to create a social gathering place for the local community that focuses on our aligned passion around local food and agriculture,” Century Group President Sean Hodgins explained.
“We are pleased we were able to plan a mixed-use building that not only creates a wonderful social space with Four Winds’ excellent food and beverage offerings that are all about local farming and food, but also one that can accommodate homes for families at all stages of their lives,” Hodgins said.
“Moreover, it meets the requirements of the City’s zoning and is totally in keeping with our commitment to excellence in neighbourhood planning and the unique Neo-Traditional architecture that now defines Southlands.”
Four Winds Brewing Company’s Adam Mills said he and his brother Brent have been involved with Century Group in designing the proposed mixed-use building that meets the expectations the City set out when the City changed the zoning to allow a “brew pub” designation in Southlands’ Market District.
“This proposed 8,600 sqft. building limits our brewing facility at Southlands to just under 2,600 square feet, providing us with the ideal space for a small batch specialty brewhouse and restaurant. We look forward to highlighting local while furthering our culinary explorations and community engagement,” Four Winds’ Adam Mills explained.
“We’ve long had this vision of being part of the unique Southlands community. We know that it will take a couple of years to construct the building. Like many of our customers, we can hardly wait to be sitting down, looking out over Southlands’ fields while enjoying a beer and great food with our neighbours and friends,” Mills said.
